  1. i'm not gonna lie, i kinda got obsessed with the honda from girl with dragon tattoo, i dont know if it was the bike scenes or that she was a freak in the bed. either way I LIKE IT.

    so maybe just maybe its time to add a secondary bike . no, i don't want one i have to fix up. let me know what you got, i'll raise my limit for the right bike.

    Then get it. It's ready to rock and roll! Half helmet, some aviator goggles, black engineer boots, and a white scarf, you're good to go

    Steer clear of the red one!!! Didn't see it didn't have a title. With no title it's worthless, especially if the old owner was still legal owner and saw all the work done to it and decided he wanted it back
     
  4. might be too clean for what im visioning anyways, wonder how much it'll cost me to make a replica of the one from the movie..

    Hmm interesting it's a long shot, but I'll give it a go....

    I have 80' Honda CM400E. Works perfectly, clean title, and has about 8.5k original miles. I'd be willing to sell it for 1.5k that way you can used that extra $500.00 to mod it to your liking.

    In regards to the movie that'd probably translates to Black Paint (gloss optional), a proper single cafe seat, and as of course clip on handle bars. (I'll include two chrome bar end mirrors, new grips, and a chrome clubman bar for you to get started) ;)

    PS: If you're willing to work w/ me I'd be willing to replicate that bike so long as you'll pay for the parts and a little labor on my part.

  8. you have a PM. thinking about letting once of my four projects go.
     
  9. Not necessarily. He said he can't find the title, if it truly is in his name you can get an affidavit and bill of sale to get the title back. I bought a bike because it was cheap even though it had 'no title' but the guy had a registration form with his name on it, which was good enough for me to go to the DMV and sort it all out.
